McGraw Invitational attendance increases 22 percent
August 14, 2012 - ABM's 2012 Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Invitational, held last week, reported a 22 percent increase in attendance compared to last year. Executives from ALM, Asset International, Farm Progress, McGraw-Hill, NewBay, Penton, SourceMedia and other member companies enjoyed a guilt-free afternoon of golf, tennis and networking at the Ardsley Country Club. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Business Press Educational Foundation (BPEF), which places college students in internships within ABM member companies.
The day kicked off with a buffet lunch followed by golf and tennis tournaments. At an awards ceremony and reception, winners were announced. Two teams tied for first place: William Carter, Eric Lundberg, Charlie Siegel & Lenny Izzo and Joseph Berkery, Jim Berkery, Bryan Bellmare, Andrew Speter & Ted Coene.
The Business Press Educational Foundation, founded in 1985 by Harold W. McGraw Jr., chairman emeritus of The McGraw-Hill Companies, actively promotes business information and media companies to college students through internship and scholarship programs. The organization has placed more than 700 students in internships and has awarded more than 50 scholarships. Internships are offered year-round and can be credit only or for pay.
